Jennifer Joseph, LSW

Jennifer is a licensed clinical therapist with experience in community mental health and private practice. She works with a wide range of individuals, from teenagers, retirees, couples, and families.

She has trained extensively and maintains a practice with a specialization as a certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy practitioner. This specialization lends itself well to her core areas of focus; trauma, PTSD, abuse, depression, anxiety, OCD, low self-esteem, life adjustment issues, and more.

EMDR is a proven technique to effectively treat a variety of issues, such as trauma and PTSD, anxiety and panic disorders, depression, obsessive-compulsive thoughts and behaviors, phobias, eating disorders, substance abuse, and more. As opposed to traditional talk therapy, EMDR does not require discussing a problematic issue or experience in depth. It focuses on emotions, body sensations, behaviors, and thoughts to naturally heal the brain.

In addition to EMDR, Jennifer utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy, elements of dialectical behavioral therapy, and parts-work in her approach. She has a high degree of empathy and strives to foster trust so that clients feel safe to experience emotions during sessions.
